In the past 20 months we’ve gone from school closures to distance learning to hybrid learning and now to full-time, in-person learning with remote options. Families, secondary students and staff have the opportunity to share feedback, input and ideas on how to support learning experiences in Highline so we can adapt to current needs. Hearing from you is the key to addressing what isn’t working and capitalizing on what is.
Chinook Middle School and Tyee High School will choose new mascots this month. The Thunderbird and Totem mascots must be retired by December 31, in compliance with a new state law prohibiting schools from using Native names, symbols, or images as mascots, logos, or team names. The law reflects many years of advocacy by tribes in Washington state.
